I'll add my vote for Maltose if you can get there. I buy all my ingredients there. They've got
a good stock of grains, hops, yeasts, and most everything else I've ever needed, and if their
prices are ...

Thanks, and I did check with the brewers friend calculator too. Assuming that the default 1
billion cells/mL is accurate, it looks like a 1-1.25L starter should do it (depending on the
growth model us...

Hello all,I've made starters for my last 6 or 7 batches, but for the first time I have made

Maybe I didn't let the first starter go long enough, but my second starter took off just as
quick as any ale I've done. They guys at the shop recommended 2 days on the stir plate, but I

I went to the store to get some dry yeast but was talked into making another starter with the
